Manithan - Box Office Collection

Manithan opened to poor reviews amongst critics and the media. Despite negative comments and competition from Kamal's Nayakan, Manithan became the highest grossing Tamil film at that time. It ran exceptionally well in B and C centres.

It had a great opening with theaters housefull for nearly a week. The film released in 6 theaters in Chennai City and completed 50 days in all of them - a record at that time. The film ran for 100 days in 9 theaters. Manithan was shifted from Annai Abirami to Bala Abirami and completed 175 days there.
